Marc Morano Wields the Whip!

While Senator Inhofe just wants to jail climate scientists, Marc Morano prefers a rougher style of justice:

"I seriously believe we should kick them while they're down," [Morano] said. "They deserve to be publicly flogged."

This comes very close to advocating violence against climate scientists. Its getting close to Delingpole territory. Given that Morano's followers tend to lie at the "tea-bagger" end of the political spectrum, the possibility of violent acts against scientists being committed is not outside the realm of possibility.

I would be willing to bet that a search of Morano's site (no thanks, I don't want to do it) would reveal a link to self-righteous fury over the comment of Santer to Jones in the stolen CRU emails saying that he would be tempted to beat the crap out of Pat Michaels.

I guess it's no surprise that liars are hypocrites.

Ben (who is one of the mildest folks around) got attacked by Michaels in WCR, Seitz in WSJ, and later Douglass&Christy (who'd rather make personal attacks than defend truly awful statistics), wheraas Morano seems to have made his living attacking people.

But in any case, we've got Rush "draw and quarter them" and Glenn "not enough hari kari kinives", so maybe Inhofe and Morano are being mellow.
